Penn State coach could have done more

It is hard to believe that Penn State assistant coach Mike McQueary observed a young boy allegedly being raped by Jerry Sandusky and did not physically remove him from the child’s body and beat him unconscious before calling police. Nor did he have the child taken to a hospital for treatment. His lack of action makes him just as guilty.

  1. "the entire penn state football organization is guilty, carol..."

    dipstick -- you've completely ignored the fact an accusation is just that, something anyone can say. You should try looking behind the headlines before you do more herdspeak.

    Unfortunately where kids are alleged to be involved the accusation carries the guilt with it, as this incident -- if it ever happened -- shows. Like any lynch mob, no one's interested in the truth.
